A Blanket Of Autumn Glory Poem by Deanna Samuels

A Blanket Of Autumn Glory

Rating: 5.0

Autumn is now upon us
Foliage changing
Changing to its burning bronze gown
Gone are summer's lush succulent greens
Leaves are rapidly drying up
Losing their life-giving succulent juices
Gradually crinkling and shrinking
Becoming crisper and more fragile
Their thinning veins strain
Reaching out to its furthest tip
Giving nourishment from what is left
Finally, in their own last moments
The dying leaf gives over to its fate
Breaks away from the now brittle stem
Floats and flutters down, down far below
Lands atop of earlier fallen foliage
Becoming just a part of a growing heap
Spreading out over the grassy mounds
And strewn upon paths and ground
Laying as a blaze of orange, reds and golds
As a blazing blanket
A blanket of Autumn glory

A glorious Autumn poem! Entirely descriptive and poetically precious. Images and words alive and in pictorial motion.
